Judge orders man, 30, to move out of parents' home

At a Tuesday hearing, which lasted about 30 minutes, New York State Supreme Court Judge Donald Greenwood sided with Mark and Christina Rotondo of Camillus, New York. "On the advice of our lawyer we have chose to grant you up to thirty (30) days from the date shown above to remove your possessions and vacate the premises", his parents wrote on February 13.

Mark and Christina Rotondo brought the court case after several eviction letters offering money and other help were ignored.

Mr Rotondo had argued that there was a "common law requirement of six-month notice to quit" before a tenant could be "removed through ejectment action".

The Rotondos went to the town court in April after Michael stayed put, then found out only a state Supreme Court justice could remove a family member.

Rotondo would have to move out, the judge ruled.

Despite the outcome, Michael Rotondo said his fight isn't over yet. "Get one- you have to work!"

They also gave him $1,100 (£819) to leave, according to one letter, which suggested he sell some of his belongings including a broken-down Volkswagen Passat.

"If you want help finding a place your Mother has offered to help you", the letter reads.

"Michael, here is $1,100 from us to you so you can find a place to stay", a February 18 letter reads, according to the Associated Press.

Rotondo said later that he believed he was entitled to another 30 days, which would be plenty of time for him to file an appeal, delaying the eviction.

In the time that he's been at home, Rotondo said he's never been expected to contribute to household expenses, assist with chores or the maintenance of the property.

There Michael answered their questions, telling them he occupies a bedroom in his parents' home, does not speak to them and is not ready to leave home. He also ordered adult protective services to investigate, expressing concern about what was going on.

More letters were sent over the following weeks including offers to help Michael by giving him $1,100 and advice on how to deal with his broken auto, reported the NY Post, but to no avail.

Mr Rotondo said he plans to appeal the decision.

"They have no obligation to provide support, he's well over the age of 21", a lawyer for Rotondo's parents had argued in court.

In a redacted filing, Michael said he runs his own "successful" business, calling it "the overwhelmingly superior choice for the [his] economic well being over the working of a full-time job".
